Event description

Description

In this hour-long lecture. Burlesque Hall of Fame Board Member and acclaimed Burlesque Historian Neil Kendall delves into the colourful and flamboyant history of Burlesque. From the British Music Halls ‘Tableaux Vivant’, to the full blown glamour of the Minskys Stage in the 1940’s, through to the Go Go dancing clubs of the 1960’s, this eccentric and swift moving lecture uncovers the fascinating history of Burlesque by a man who has been friends to legendary starts of the Burlesque Stage such as Tempest Storm and Blaze Starr . Richly illustrated with images and exhibits from the pop-up Striptease museum which also appears at the festival, "100 years years of undressing to music" is eye-opening yet educational and thought provoking.
